West Ham did not play in midweek but four of the six loanees were in action. There was a full bill of Football League games with four Hammers taking part. Here are short summaries of how they got on.
Jordan Hugill was on the losing side on Wednesday night but his individual performance caught the eye. The 27-year-old headed in an equaliser for QPR in their 3-1 loss at home to Swansea City.
It was Hugill’s first goal at Loftus Road and his second of the season. He netted on his debut against Stoke City and now has two goals in four matches for QPR.

West Ham’s Bermuda-born youngster Nathan Trott is on loan at AFC Wimbledon. And despite the Dons’ struggles in League One, the 20-year-old has been thoroughly impressive.
Trott made a string of stunning saves in just his second outing to keep Wimbledon ahead against Ipswich Town. However, two late goals for the Tractor Boys lost the game for Wimbledon, although there was little Trott could have done.
Hammers midfielder Josh Cullen continues to impress at Charlton Athletic. The 23-year-old got another 90 minutes under his belt for the Addicks as their 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest kept them in the play-off zone.
The Republic of Ireland international is a fan favourite at The Valley after returning on loan. He has played the full 90 minutes in three games since moving back to Charlton.
West Ham sent midfielder Grady Diangana on loan to West Bromwich Albion on deadline day. The 21-year-old impressed in the cup before scoring twice from the bench on his debut.
His second league outing, however, was not quite so successful. The England U20 starlet was axed in the second half after struggling. West Brom and Reading was goalless when Diangana came off and it ended 1-1.
Martin Samuelsen and Sead Haksabanovic are both on loan in Scandinavia. Samuelsen’s Haugesund (Norway) did not play while IFK Norrkoping rested Haksabanovic for a 6-1 win in the Swedish cup.
